ambiguous of the effect of product placement (e.g. Kadekova, 2018; Evens, 2017). As the current findings are very ambiguous, it is difficult to reach a consensus and therefore our findings remain equivocal. While some of the literature is supportive of a positive impact on purchase intention (e.g. Woods, 2016; Korotina & Jargalsaikhan, 2016) there are also studies which suggest the opposite. This makes it difficult for us to provide an exact implication. Congruency of product-placement is suggested as a factor, which is crucial in this case (Ewers, 2017; Wnent, 2018, Pavlova, 2016). A few studies state that as long as product placement is not very obtrusive and does not disturb the congruence of the post on socialmedia, it does not negatively impact purchase decision (e.g. Einarsdottir, 2017). Therefore, it is worth examining if congruence of product placement can moderate the effect on product placement. It may be possible that organic seeding of product- related content can positively impact purchase intention. This is worth examining and, in this regard, (Table 3, RQ4) is formulated. There may be other factors which may influence purchase decision too. The inherent brand attitude a person may have can influence purchase intention (Boerman, 2017; Veissi, 2017). It is unclear if a positive strong attitude can mediate the effect of product placement on purchase intention. It may be possible that if the brand attitude is extremely positive, it may avert the negative effect of product placement. Therefore, it is recommended that studies in the future concentrate on this aspect (Table 3, RQ5).
Socialmedia coupled with electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) communication is very e ﬀ ective and e ﬃ cient in changing consumers’ attitude and behavior towards a product and/or brand (Zhang, Craciun, & Shin, 2010). As compared to word-of-mouth communication(WOM) communication, electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) adver- tising is faster, swifter and has a global reach (Gil de Zúñiga, Jung, & Valenzuela, 2012). In view of its significance from marketing per- spective, it is important to investigate the determinants that a ﬀ ect electronic word- of-mouth (eWOM) communication (Aiello et al., 2012) (M. Y. Cheung, Luo, Sia, & Chen, 2009). Thus the aim of this study is to mea- sure the e ﬀ ect of amophily, social capital, in- terpersonal influence and trust on electron- ic word-of-mouth communication (eWOM) by extending the conceptual framework developed by Chu (2009) in a non-western environment like Pakistan.
ideological and technological foundations of web 2.0, and allow the creation and exchange of user generated content.” Socialmedia employ mobile and web-based technologies to create highly interactive platforms via which individuals and create, discuss, and modify user- (Kietzmann, Hermkens, McCarthy, & (Garnyte & Perez, 2009) argue that social web tool which enables users to become active creators of the content, to communicate with each other actively, create and exchange various information. Socialmedia comprise both the conduits and the content disseminated through interactions between individuals and organizations (Kietzmann, Hermkens, McCarthy, & Silvestre, 2011). Socialmedia encompasses a wide range of online, word-of- mouth forums including blogs, company sponsored discussion boards and chat rooms, consumer-to-consumer e-mail, consumer product or service ratings websites and forums, Internet discussion boards and forums, moblogs (sites containing digital audio, images, movies, or photographs), and sites, to name a few (Mangold & There are literally hundreds of different socialmedia platforms (e.g., social networking, text messaging, shared photos, podcasts, streaming videos, wikis, blogs and oups).

In this company, when Twitter began to draw attention, it was sought to exploit it. As the result, Twitter came to be used as a means of communicating directly with customers. The company replied to the post content of the user as follows; “I started using products”, “I am embarrassed now, what to do?”, “Great success!”, and so on.

influences firm performance; Relationship marketing practices, product practices positioning practices, targeting practices, socialmedia practices and pricing practices have significant influence on customer satisfaction in the ICT firms in India.

Viral marketing spreads thanks to people’s natural motive to communicate and inform other people in their networks about the things they find interesting or useful. Viral marketing is a tactic that aims to communicate the planned contents to a specific target audience in the most effective and sincere manner by using communication channels. Interactive applications and especially videos, advergames, pictures, audio files, presentations and even text contents are the most important tools of viral marketing. These products become marketing tools with the addition of commercial messages. A viral ad can be categorized into two: The first one is a video film, which is created by a user and creates a positive impact incidentally on a brand and shared by this user with other users on socialmedia. The second one is a company having a professional team to make and spread a viral advertisement. However, what is important here and what is different from traditional commercial films is that the viral ad is created in a way that seems to be created by an amateur user (Quoted from Eckler, Bolls, 2011 by: Uraltaú, BahadÕrlÕ, 2012). These video films interest and are shared by users. Thus, brand name starts to be known by other users.
valedictory address of the session. Dr. Sharma confined his observations related to the topic of seminar i.e Relationship Marketing through Social Networking sites; into a few limited points. He realized that most of researchers are working on the social networking because of the growing importance of Socialmedia. One eighth productive time of blue collor workers in USA is spent on Socialmedia. More alarming thing about mass media is that people are well connected with the world through media but there is lack of close association with their neighbors‟. He highlighted some facts related to relationship marketing that socialmedia is the media of mass distractions; we are destroying our interpersonal relations with our relatives. He illustrated his thoughts with the help of different suitable examples. He further emphasized that as a teacher we all should transform ourselves in order to build up more innovative and creative ideas in the minds of our students. The valedictory session was concluded with certificate distribution ceremony to various delegates from different colleges. At last, he appreciated the efforts made by College Managing Committee, Principal and Teaching staff for organizing such type of interactive programs for upgrading the knowledge of students and teachers. Dr. Karun Kant Uppal presented his Vote of Thanks to the speakers and all contributors for sharing their invaluable thoughts and such a long benign presence throughout the seminar.
In a task, the advertiser provides the URL of the target tweet containing the product information. The advertiser can impose some written requirements for the task, such as how long the endorser should keep (i.e., not delete) the retweet on their timeline, and the minimal length of the comment in the retweet. Furthermore, the advertiser can specify who is eligible for the task. Some eligibility restrictions are hard restrictions automated by the platform, such as the allowable day part of participation (e.g., 9am-9pm), while other are soft restrictions attached in the written requirements that need to be manually verified afterwards. If an endorser decides to participate, she needs to retweet the given tweet, fulfill the requirements, and then submit the URL of her retweet. The duration of a task ranges from 3 to 5 days. Once the task ends, the advertiser has 3 days to manually approve or disapprove the submissions, depending on whether the endorser has truly retweeted the given tweet and fulfilled the requirements. All remaining submissions are approved automatically by the platform after the 3-day window. Because of this auto-approval policy, opportunistic endorsers or spammers may submit a random URL even if they haven’t retweeted the tweet. For approved tasks, the endorsers are paid and weituitui charges a 30% commission fee. That fee is reduced to 15% for an extremely small proportion (0.3%) of VIP endorsers who have spent (rather than earned) more than 1000RMB on weituitui.com.
Annual India Digital Summit in its sixth edition on 18 January 2012 in New Delhi was held with a big focus on tapping the anticipated 600 million mobile internet user bases by 2020.

Higher education institutions have accepted the fact that they must formulate a marketing strategy and adopt a marketing program to successfully compete in the national and global markets. Research on this facet of higher education marketing is limited (Hemsley-Brown & Oplatka, 2006). Traditional marketing fundamentals from the business sector do not fully fit the needs of higher education as they are mostly based on consumptive models (Gibbs, 2002). Instead, Gibbs (2002) suggests that higher education marketing has to be viewed from a model of “collaborative relationships”. In line with this view, there are studies that focus on higher education with a service model because of the intangibility of the product, and suggest that marketing should be carried out with a relationship marketing approach. Relationship marketing focuses on retention rather than acquisition (Helgesen, 2008). For higher education this means building and maintaining a relationship of value exchange between the institution and the three main customer groups: alumni, current students and potential future students. The quality of these relationships is positively related to the customers’ long-term loyalty (McAlexander & Koenig, 2001). Also the relationships between customers about the brand experience are positively related to the customers’ long-term loyalty (McAlexander, Koenig, & Schouten, 2005).
Making use of marketing experiences companies pay attention to social issues, which require a broader type of information to be distributed amongst society. Apart from social campaigns they also promote themselves as taking an active part in actions of this kind. Ferrero Poland is an example here, which through its Kinder-series products reminds consumers about its participation in this undertaking.
Sport marketing is the specific application of marketing principles and processes to sports products and services. In 2014 the biggest sports event in the world, the FIFA World Cup, took place in Brazil. Billions of spectators around the world saw Germany win the trophy in Rio de Janeiro for the fourth time in history. Yet unlike in previous World Cups, conversation was not only taking place at the numerous public viewings which were held in open spaces like bars and restaurants. For the entire tournament socialmedia like Facebook or Twitter were playing a dominant role in all aspects. With 672 million tweets on Twitter and three billion conversations on Facebook, this was the most social World Cup as well as the most social mega sports event so far. It did not matter whether it were users, athletes or companies, everyone was trying to catch up on the conversation to be informed or inform others about their opinion or latest news. This paper analyzes the implementation of socialmediamarketing during mega sports events with a focus on adidas’ and Nike’s socialmedia campaigns in the frame of the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. The analysis shows that socialmediamarketing in the frame of mega sports events gains importance. Those companies finding topics that affect people personally with a relationship to their products achieve success through socialmediamarketing.
4) Increase Success of New Product Launches: Social networks provide a unique opportunity to survey the relevant community on their products wants and needs. The community can guide and participate in the product development process. Giving them a voice in the process can increase loyalty and guarantee success when a new product is launched. Users of social networking sites profile themselves upon joining a network. These profiles can be very detailed, and their purpose is to help the user connect with others who share similar interests and activities. The profiles contain, not only basic information about the user, but also information on their education, areas of technical expertise publications, memberships in other groups, geographic location, and job position (among other information). For marketers, this information is invaluable as it can be used to develop highly targeted marketing messages.
Blogs are another communication tool, which is “a webpage that serves as a publicly accessible personal journal for an individual” (Lee, et al., 2006, p.317). Blogs can be used by both the selling as well as the buying organization and blogs provide some interaction between the author and the readers. With a blog, organizations can communicate news about the company, their stakeholders or their products or services in an easy way. Additionally, different opinions from customers, employees, partners, suppliers can be gathered with the help of blogs and therefore, with the help of stakeholders’ suggestions, new products or services could be redesigned (L.-T. Chen, 2013; Wu, et al., 2009). Mangold and Faulds (2009) found that blogs are suitable to engage the customer, because the buying organizations are able to give some feedback to the selling organization. Moreover, due to blogs, organizations and their experts can share ideas and thoughts and can communicate better and more personally; therefore blogs can increase brand awareness, brand loyalty and blogs can improve the relationship with customers and other stakeholders (Callebaut, 2011). According to Karayanni and Beltas (2003), websites play an important role in the communication of an organization’s core competences and the organization’s culture. A website is beneficial for a company as it can increase the image of the company, improve services to clients, save time, increase sales revenue and furthermore, due to the existence of a website there could be an increase in new clients (Kim, et al., 2012) Websites are therefore excessively used by businesses. It has been researched, on behalf of the Dutch organization SIDN, which takes care of the issuance and registration of .nl domain names, that socialmedia is used mainly as a trigger to gain traffic to the corporate website and that socialmedia is a complement rather a substitute for the own corporate website (SIDN, 2012). Research indicates that the B2B segment is the largest segment of electronic commerce, because the B2B segment spends, in comparison with the B2C and C2C segment, the most on electronic commerce (Martini, et al., 2009; Maurer & Liu, 2007; Noble & Parkinson, 2005). Therefore it is especially for the B2B segment very interesting to have a good, content-rich corporate website.
Strategies involving socialmedia can be termed as product branding, researching market dynamics, consumer relationship management, service provision, increasing sales tricks and many more. All of these socialmedia advertising strategies provide evidence of the positive advantages socialmedia incorporates into the marketing study. In spite of such evidence, there exist numerous companies which are yet to involve these strategies into their campaign. If this field of marketing is studied and experimented in more depth, it is guaranteed that there will be more new evolving strategies which can be further be improved and used as leverage. The current study in fields of marketing involving socialmedia has provided marketers with numerous published research and implications have been drawn for practice and theory. The expanding property of socialmedia makes it a tempting engine for business men and advertisers to market their products and services.
Reid and Reid (1993) and Oliver (1997) defined green customer loyalty as the customer wanted to maintain a relation with an institute which was involved environmental or green concerns and committed to re-buy or re patronize a preferred product consistently in the future. It was the intention to repurchase, the design to recommend, show tolerance for a higher price and purchase other products with an institute.
